Southern Cross Austereo’s Hit Network has announced that hit105 breakfast show Stav, Abby & Matt will continue to wake up Brisbanites until the end of 2020.
Stav Davidson, Abby Coleman and Matty Acton have hosted hit105’s brekkie slot since 2011.
Mathew Eggleston, content director at hit105, said the news sent ripples throughout the station when it broke earlier today.
“We are so excited to have Stav, Abby & Matt confirmed as our hit105 breakfast show until the end of 2020,” he said.
“They have had a fantastic 12 months at the top of the radio surveys here in Brisbane, so it’s not only brilliant for us as a station, but for all the listeners out there who tune in daily knowing their favourite show is locked in long-term.
Southern Cross Austereo’s executive general manager for Queensland, Damon Rielly, said: “With Brisbane being the most fiercely contested radio market in the country and other Brisbane breakfast shows experiencing instability, locking in Stav, Abby & Matt was an important move to provide Brisbane consistency to start their day.
“Breakfast sets the tone for the rest of the day, and we are thrilled to have Stav, Abby & Matt locked in until the end of 2020.
“This gives our listeners security, our partners and advertisers security, and it allows our breakfast team to think long-term and create some wonderful experiences for the city.”
The news follows a recent announcement by Southern Cross Austereo that it will relocate its Brisbane headquarters from its current North Quay home to a new custom-fitted set-up at The Barracks in 2019.
